Scribd kicks off its original content initiative with a book about Robert Mueller

Scribd is moving into the original content business with the release of Muellers War, a book by journalist Garrett Graff looking at the prosecutors time as a marine in the Vietnam War.
CEO Trip Adler revealed earlier this year that the subscription e-book and audiobook service would be moving in this direction. Today, Scribd is actually releasing its first title and revealing more details about its plans.
Adler told me the initial lineup of Scribd Originals mixes fiction and nonfiction, with a focused on the space between a magazine article and a book namely, pieces up to 50,000 words in length, that are too long to run in a magazine but arent long enough to be published as a standalone book.
The hope is for Scribd to build a closer relationship with authors while offering something thats unique for our readers, Adler said.
We pay an advance similar for a traditional book, he added. ?Theres a period of exclusivity, [but] in some cases we will also be distributing books over time to other digital platforms Were still staying open-minded about those kinds of things.

Scribd has more than 1M paying subscribers
